Athens, Georgia, USA, April 23, 2015 The latest version – 6.6 – of Docebo’s Cloud-based, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Enterprise learning management system (LMS) offers a range of refinements and enhancements to its features and apps, improving the LMS’s modularity.
Ranked among the world’s top six LMSs – out of some 650 – in January this year by an independent market analyst, Craig Weiss, Docebo’s e-learning platform currently has over 28,000 installations around the world and offers an enterprise solution for mid-sized to large organizations.
According to Docebo’s CEO, Claudio Erba, providing training for your partners, dealers, customers, and even prospects – the idea behind the Extended Enterprise (EE) approach – is gaining momentum around the world.
Consequently, the new version of the Docebo LMS includes refinements that EE customers will find useful, including an enhanced multi-domain app, which manages multiple clients with unique domains from a single LMS. The enhancement improves the user experience as well as providing automatic setup for domain configuration and HTTP(S) addresses for the various domains.
For EE customers, this makes the Docebo LMS a ‘multi-domain, multi-branding, multi-layout’ solution. This addresses the main core of EE – enabling customers to establish a different brand and layout for each domain within a single LMS while focusing on different training targets.
“EE learning is any training, knowledge, certification or performance support provided to your non-employees – such as channel distribution partners, resellers, dealers, franchises, members, customers and end-users of your products and services,” Claudio explained. “EE learning is facilitated by a Cloud-based LMS, such as Docebo’s – to keep track of users, content and the relationship between the two.”
Another big improvement involves the expansion of the LMS’s popular widgets feature, now allowing the first page that users see after logging in to be a highly configurable user dashboard created by the LMS’s administrator.
As a result, it’s possible to have multiple configurations saved and assigned to different user groups, such as managers, administrators, and learners, to create a unique and personalized learning experience. As the top independent e-learning analyst, Craig Weiss, has said: “Docebo is uniquely modular in that you can customize your LMS, activating or de-activating apps in order to fit your training requirements.”
In addition, the new release introduces a training and re-certification app which allows administrators to create training certifications that validate users’ skill levels for various topics. Users get the certification by completing designated courses, learning plans, or approved external activities. Delivery and expiration policies, related to the certifications, can be configured according to the organization’s specific needs.
Given that certification requirements change, one of the most powerful features of this app is its ability to allow for courses to change during the re-certification process. This enables certification providers to update their courses to meet the latest requirements, without the learners having to re-take learning content that they have already studied.
There’s also a module that enables administrators to store test questions in a question bank for re-use across multiple assessments/evaluations. This allows for single-sourcing questions among multiple tests via internal links to questions – and, once a question is updated, its changes are propagated automatically without the need to edit every assessment, including that question.
Blogging about his most recent Report, which names the world’s top 50 LMSs, Craig Weiss said of the Docebo LMS, “I love the one-click app into the platform and the inclusion of content into the LMS. Docebo is a disruptor in the industry, which has feature sets to contend with in the market.”
